Oh my God...............where do I start?? I booked this lodging on-line. The picture shown is of the restaurant up the hill, not of the Lodge itself. I don;t know what hotel they used for the pictures of the rooms. The room was moldy and musty and smelled sour. There were roaches (both dead and alive) in the bathroom. The carpet was stained and filthy. The couch was filthy. The beds were filthy. We drove up and I immediately got a sense of "oh my God, what have I done??" I only paid for one night (in cash), and we spent less than 5 minutes in our "suite" before leaving. Thankfully, the manager refunded my money while his wife apologized. I just looked at him and his wife and told them to clean for a month before advertising or taking anyone elses money again. Please, if you need a place to stay, have mercy on yourself and your family and go elsewhere.

This is, by far, the worst lodging I've ever encountered in my entire travels.

We traveled to Missouri for a family reunion and historically this had been the meeting locale for out of town family. Apparently it has changed ownership several times over the years. Currently is family owned and operated, which typically is nice except the current owners reside there and almost seemingly have no respect for the guests. Some of the family were friendly (front desk staff) but the random grandparent had no problem walking around looking into the windows of each room to see who and what is inside.

I booked our room months ago and indicated we were with a group. We were the first to arrive and were told that we would have a room on the second floor. Out of all the rooms on the main level and traveling with a toddler, a second floor room was less than appealing. I was told they were booked on the last night of our stay so I had to have a second floor room, which I accepted.

The stairs to the room were covered in rust, as was the railing the protected you from the ground below. The room itself was small, cramped and was in obvious disrepair, as the ceiling had been damaged recently by water and had shoddily (and minimally) been repaired. The faucet on the bathtub came off in my hand. There was zero room for a bassinet, not that I was looking forward to any member of my family setting up shop.

Through a family connection (i.e. someone had booked an additional room) we were able to be moved to another room that was better (and on the ground floor) but not by much.

In essence, the rooms were clean but everything else was minimal. The bedding was old and loose; the mattresses were coming apart, torn and ripped. The trim around the shower was basic, cheap and there probably because of a law. This family did nothing to improve the status of the hotel, did not go out of their way to make our stay enjoyable or welcoming. It was the basic of the basic. To my extreme surprise, as mentioned at check in, the motel was completely packed on Saturday night; packed with high school and early college age kids and possibly truckers. Lots of drinking, lots of people hanging out on the steps. I saw maybe one other family that wasn't part of ours.

This is located about 2 miles outside of Macon; there are 2 other lodging opportunities in the area - Super 8 and what appears to be a new Comfort inn. Use your money there, avoid this place at all cost.
